Easy Steps to Get Douyin Makeup Look
1. Wear Contact Lenses to Make Your Eyes Look Sharp
Douyin’s makeup is very focused on big and sharp eyes. That’s why the first step that you should consider is wearing contact lenses. Besides replacing the role of glasses, using lenses also help you to make your eyes bigger and sharper. You just need to choose the right lenses to prevent the tacky look.
Okay, let me help you to find the right lenses for you. If you already have big eyes, I think you just need to choose lenses that have a diameter of 14 – 14,5 mm. Meanwhile, if your eyes are small, you can prefer lenses with a diameter of 14,5 – 15 mm which helps to make your eyes bigger. Remember not less or over that to get the perfect eye look. Then, use a color that can make your eyes sharp like grey, light brown, or brown.
2. Don’t Forget to Use Skincare Before Makeup!
Even though this makeup more focus on the eyes and lips, doesn’t mean you don’t consider your skin look. Remember this makeup also focuses on glowing skin which is you need the help of skincare. Furthermore, skincare can help to protect your skin from chemical makeup that is very dangerous for your skin.
But you need to choose the right skincare to make this makeup look flawless. Because if you choose the wrong product, your makeup will be worse. And I’m sure, for you who are still a beginner will very confused to choose your skincare, therefore, we will help you with this!
For people with oily skin, you should be careful of choosing skincare products to avoid greasy makeup. We recommend you prefer a product that has a light texture and is watery to make it easily absorbed into your skin. Otherwise, for those who have dry skin, you can use a product that has a thick and creamy texture to moisten your skin well.
3. Make Your Skin Look Flawless with Primer
Wanna having flawless makeup? Then, primer is the key if you want to get flawless makeup! For some people, this product is useless and wastes time to apply it. But if you’re a makeup expert, I’m sure you won’t miss out on this step. Because primer has the function to fix the problem on your skin like oily skin, dry skin, or even big pores.
You can use a primer that has a silicone texture if your skin is oily and has big pores. Because this primer has the function to hold the oil and blur the pores on your skin. But if your skin is dry, of course, you need a primer that can give hydration to your skin. Usually, it has a gel or cream texture and applies to the area that is easy to get cracked or very dry.
4. Prefer Cushion Over Foundation to Get Natural Flawless Skin
Why you should prefer a cushion over the foundation? If you’re still a beginner, you will think both of these products are the same, and just the packaging make both of them look different. Therefore, we are here to tell you the difference between both of them and why for douyin makeup you should wear a cushion.
Foundation usually has a thick texture and makes your skin look unnatural. Moreover, if you choose the wrong foundation, I believe it will look tacky. Meanwhile, the cushion looks more natural than the foundation and has similar coverage to the foundation. This is why many people prefer to use cushions over the foundation.
To apply the cushion you can use the cushion puff, foundation brush, or even a wet sponge. We suggest you apply the product using a cushion puff or wet sponge for the natural finish. But if you want to get the coverage you can use a foundation brush.
5. Concealer to Hide The Blemishes on Your Skin
Have many blemishes on your skin that can be hidden with a cushion? Don’t worry, because there’s a product that is called concealer. This is a must-have makeup product if you have many blemishes on your skin. The concealer has a higher coverage over a cushion or even foundation, this is why it’s very effective to hide blemishes on your skin.
For this kind of makeup, because we want to have a natural finish, you can choose a liquid concealer. I know it will not be effective like cream concealer. But we have a tip for you on how to use liquid concealer. First put the concealer on the area that needs extra coverage like dark spot, acne, or dark circle. Then, wait a few minutes until the condition is half-dry. Furthermore, you can continue to blend it slowly with a wet sponge.
6. Give a Dimension to Your Face Using Cream Contour
Now it’s the time to bring the dimension to your face. Douyin makeup is focused on pale skin, therefore, you should make your contour as natural as possible. So, you can choose a cream product to contour your face.
Also, you should choose the shade of contour that has 1-2 shades below your skin tone to make it natural. After choosing the right contour product, you can start to apply it under your cheekbone, jawline, hairline, and nose. Then, blend it very well to get the natural finish and prevent a tacky look.
7. Choose Cream Blush for Natural Blushy Cheeks
For the blush step, you should wear a cream product too. Because it will give a natural blushy cheek as we want. Then for the color of the blush, douyin makeup usually uses neutral color but can make your face look fresh and cute. So, our choice falls into peach or coral color.
Finish choosing the right blush color, you can start to apply the blush. To make your face look cute and innocent, you can put the blush on your cheekbone and then connect it to the outer corner of your eyes. Don’t forget about your nose too! Furthermore, blend it until it looks soft and merges with your skin.
8. Use Less Powder to Maintain The Glowing Skin
Douyin makeup is focused on glowing skin. Not only using the right complexion but the technique on how you apply the powder also determines the glow of your skin. As you know, the powder can make your makeup matte and it will loose your skin glow. Therefore, you should use less powder and focus only on the area that is easy to get oil, crack, or where you put the concealer.
Because the powder has a lot of types which are loose powder, translucent powder, two-way cake powder, and powder foundation, I know you will be very confused. You don’t have to feel confused, girls! You just need to adjust it with your needs. But if you want to have a natural finish look, we recommend you use loose powder or translucent powder.
